Prices to increase by 3 percent.

Renault India has announced that it will increase prices across its lineup from January 2016. The price increase is announced to be 3 percent, and will affect the newly-launched Renault Kwid as well.

Renault Kwid vs Renault Duster
The Kwid has superseded the Duster as Renault India’s best selling model.

The Kwid was launched in the last week of September 2015 with prices ranging from INR 2.56 lakhs to INR 3.53 lakhs, ex-Showroom, New Delhi. The small car has already received over 75,000 bookings and commands a waiting period upto 6 months in certain cities.

Renault India have announced that they will ramp up production of the Kwid. According to a report, the Chennai plant, which is currently making around 5,000 units/month will produce around 8,000-10,000 units/month within the next 3-6 months.

Renault Kwid engine launched India
A more powerful 1.0-liter petrol engine is expected on the Kwid later in its lifecycle.

The Kwid is currently offered with a three-cylinder 0.8-liter petrol engine capable of 54 PS and 72 Nm of torque, with an ARAI-rated fuel efficiency of 25.17 km/l. A 5-speed manual gearbox is the only transmission choice on offer, but an automated manual transmission (AMT) is in the reckoning, reportedly next year.
